The 2018 Aviary California Chardonnay is emblematic of the classic rich style we strive for in every vintage. The wine starts lively with floral nots of hibiscus and warm baking spice, before proceeding to the mid-palate with an enticing texture of silky custard or flan. Notes of coconut and tropical fruits abound throughout. Guava, pineapple and subtle notes of toasty vanilla bean. The wine finishes with a refreshing splash of tangy acidity complimented with hints of tasted hazelnuts.
2018 Cabernet SauvignonCalifornia
The 2018 Aviary California Cabernet Sauvignon, as in previous vintages, is developed to offer the classic big, rich, dark fruit Cabernet attributes, while also displaying our velvety smooth tannin structure, tempered by our consistent selection of oak. On the nose you will find generous blueberry fruit with a touch of crushed earth. The mid-pallet continues with dark fruit expressions of cassis, some red fruit in the form of subtle strawberry preserves, and just a touch of bright menthol or eucalyptus.
Reserve Cabernet SauvignonNapa Valley
Special moments deserve special wines, 14 months of oak aging has this beautiful expression of Napa Valley prepared to shine. Each year we select the best wines from up to 7 different vineyard sites to create a blend that expresses both the uniqueness of each vintage and the elegant style of Aviary Reserve. Layers of chocolate, strawberry, dried cherry, tobacco, and toasted oak balance with silky tannins and bright acidity to create a perfectly balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that can be enjoyed now or aged over time.
Birds of Prey Red BlendNapa Valley
Our Birds of Prey Red Blend is inspired by the guardians of our vineyards. Owls by night and raptors throughout the day, birds of prey hunt in our vines allowing us to naturally manage the vineyards without pesticides. As homage, this wine is big, bold, and balanced. It is dark garnet in color with aromas of brambleberries, cassis, cigar box, spice, almonds, and chocolate. The round palate offers a memorable profile of red fruits, dark chocolate, and a subtle tea leaf that lingers.
